Nokia 8 February security update - Page 8

@HMD_Laura can you please tell us if this next update you're talking about is only security patch, or does it also contain the stupidly overdue bug fixes?

    Hi all, 

    I want to give a quick update concerning the March SP: 

    There was a one-time issue in rolling out March security update for Nokia 8, Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 2 due to the addition of new test cases and together with Google, we decided to take extra time to review before releasing the update. The four impacted product will receive March security patch in the coming week. 

    Best regards, 
    Laura 


    Nokia 2 Oreo also ?
    Because some people have already switched over to Oreo.

    Also, since you seem to have finally (urghhh...) connected with the development teams: what's the status of the promised camera software fixes and adjustments? The device is close to EOL and the damned camera app is still flaky af! I'm so close to giving you reasons to ban me, out of frustration!
    Don't do it mate you are better than that :) (plus we'd all miss your rants :D)

    I think we should continue with the Class action lawsuit against Nokia

    Why is 8 Sirocco always ignored in every official announcement? Like it never existed in this world, or I'm using and typing this comment with a phone that doesn't exist?

    Thanks for this info. What is about Nokia 8 Sirocco?

    Thank you for sharing this information with us, I have to say I'm relieved to get some news, especially about the 5 and 6, although it would also be appreciated to get some confirmation on the support end date for those models.

    I really hope that you providing this information is the start of a new approach from HMD. As I've said elsewhere, all we need is a little bit of time from one or two people on each model each week and we'll make progress quickly.

    Cheers :)

    Oh, "great". HMD will roll out (presumably 😂) next week the march security update for the Nokia 8. Only a security update? In my mind this is absolutely useless. That, what the Nokia 8 needs, is a maintance update to reapair the many bugs.

    And, what it needs, is a/ the new better version of/ for the terrible camera-app.

    We will see. In the moment Laura speaks only about s security update, not more. I'm afraid, next week will be only available a/ the "pure" march security update. 

    To compare. For the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus the april security update is available since today. 👍 Without problems. 👍👍👍

    Poor HMD. 😪😳😒

    maybe they always mean both Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco when saying "Nokia 8"? I know they also call Nokia 8.1 often as "Nokia 8" on social media...
  • I see that it's March, but what happens to those who did not receive February update?

    The update was late and it was just a SP? What the heck hmd doing lately? Thats the reason why some of smartphone users here in my country having a second thought buying nokia even we have a strong nokia community.

    Please do something(not stupid please)HMD, dont forget the old ones.

    Please Give Nokia 8 a stable pie build and camera software.

  • is there something to be heard about pie v5.140? February security update? I see it being discussed from March to April, when we are updating from January?

    Here are some issues I hope are fixed for (my) Nokia 8 running Pie with the next update:

    -Phone freezes, usually once per day
     (always when switching between apps).

    -Fingerprint sensor does not work half the time.

    -Performance issues, lagging between screens at times.

    I haven't noticed anything with GPS or the Camera.

    I don't think issues that you're experiencing are caused by Pie bugs. Have you tried factory reset?

    you do not have a Nokia 8 but a disaster. do a hard reset

    I just hope they will NOT release only Android security patch just to prevent breaking their obligation of providing security updates and to give themselves another few months to continue "burning the midnight oil" which is their code for doing nothing to fix bugs in the firmware and camera app.

    You forgot Nokia 3.1 TA-1063. In Italy under Kena Mobile (TIM MVNO mobile operator) the phone is still at build 2.68 SP 02 with February SP. No Pie 9 update nor March or April SP...and we're on April 15th
  • This is a device that is in enterprise category and should be always up to date.
